Mobile High-Definition Link for Smart Phone
Movies and Photos on HDTV

The TX-NR616’s front-panel HDMI port is designed for the connection of mobile phones and other portable electronic devices using the new MHL standard. MHL allows you to display full 1080p video and still images on your HDTV with up to 7.1 channels of surround sound. Use the receiver’s remote to control playback from your phone as it receives a handy recharge.

InstaPrevue™ Technology Makes Switching
Sources Easy

The TX-NR616 incorporates InstaPrevue visual port management technology, making input source selection much easier. InstaPrevue technology provides a live video thumbnail of the available content on your devices connected via HDMI. You no longer have to remember that your gaming console is connected to Port 3, or your Blu-ray player to Port 1, for example—you can see what’s playing and choose accordingly.

THX® Select2 Plus™ Certified
THX Select2 Plus certification is specified for rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is three to four meters and the room volume is around 56 cubic meters. To achieve THX Select2 Plus certification, the TX-NR616 had to meet the world’s most demanding standards for home cinema audio quality and performance, and play at reference volume levels with minimal distortion. 4K Video Upscaling and Processing via Qdeo™ Technology The TX-NR616 offers full 4K (4096 x 2160) upscaling of standard video sources such as 480i/p, 720p, and 1080i/p. Interlaced-to-progressive conversion and scaling are performed by high-quality Qdeo technology from Marvell. Qdeo is a versatile video processor that uses algorithms designed to erase video noise and artifacts such as jaggies and feathering. Played back on a compatible wide-screen
display, your Blu-ray Discs and DVDs will look more detailed and cinematic than ever.
Note: 4K video playback requires a 4K-compatible TV. HDMI pass-through of 4K content from source devices is not supported.

The two Remote Apps are available separately as free downloads. *1 Compatible with iPod touch (3rd generation or later) and iPhone 3GS or later.

Innovative Design and Premium Build Deliver
Spectacular Sound

The TX-NR616 incorporates three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry, a high-quality enhancement to Onkyo’s proven WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology). The circuit design ensures low negative feedback for reduced distortion and improved handling of speaker impedance
fluctuations. Quality circuitry dovetails with a heavy-duty power supply to deliver instantaneous current in response to signal gains. The result is clear, effortless sound under heavy loads. Furthermore, the TX-NR616 features separate electronic components at the output stage—there are no cheap shortcuts to THX® sound.

Overlaid On-Screen Display with Quick
Set-Up Menu

The receiver’s HDMI-linked On-Screen Display (OSD) makes initial set-up and in-program calibration very easy. The ‘Q’ button on your remote overlays a ‘Quick Setup’ menu on the program you’re watching. This handy shortcut includes the most frequently used settings, and helps you optimize your home cinema’s performance with the minimum of disruption. The ‘Home’ button accesses standard set-up menus for more detailed adjustment.

Direct Digital iPod/iPhone Connection for Cleaner

The receiver’s front-panel USB port lets you play MP3 and AAC stored on an iPod/iPhone, and MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio files stored on a flash-memory device using the system’s own remote for track selection and playback. Your music will also sound much cleaner and clearer, as the audio signal is transported in digital form (rather than analog) via the direct digital connection.

Audyssey DSX™ and Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz for
Three-Dimensional Surround Sound

The TX-NR616 incorporates surround-sound technologies from Audyssey and Dolby to offer greater flexibility in the setup of your home cinema. Audyssey DSX can expand 5.1-channel audio soundtracks to incorporate additional Wide or Height channels, while the Dolby system adds two extra Height channels. A 7.2-channel set-up provides a more detailed, realistic, and three-dimensional soundtrack, with the extra channels carrying subtle directional and ambient effects. Furthermore, Dolby Pro Logic IIz can expand stereo sources for music and TV programs in surround sound.
